There are many questions about having twins or multiples. I have not had that experience, so I did some research and came across a site with a great Q&A Page. Here are the questions asked and answered.
Please visit their site for the answers:
  • Why did the multiple pregnancy rate increase?
  • Who is most likely to have multiples?
  • What is the difference between identical and fraternal twins?
  • How are multiple pregnancies diagnosed?
  • What complications occur more frequently in a multiple pregnancy?
  • What special care is needed in a multiple pregnancy?
  • How is preterm labor treated?
  • Should a woman expecting multiples gain extra weight?
  • Can a woman expecting multiples deliver vaginally?
  • Does the March of Dimes support research relevant to multiple gestations?
